In support of his anticipated forthcoming solo album, Nathaniel Rateliff is returning to his early acoustic days with the And It’s Still Alright tour which will be heading to the UK and European shores in April. The show will feature many facets of Rateliff’s musicianship—ranging from stripped-back moments with just his voice and an acoustic guitar to the accompaniment of a full band, while the setlist will feature songs from his entire catalogue as well as the new album, which will be released via Stax Records early next year.
Growing up in rural Missouri, Rateliff got his early music education from his family, who performed in the church band in which Rateliff played drums, and his father’s record collection. At 19, Rateliff moved to Denver where he spent the next ten years working night shifts at a bottle factory and a trucking company while testing out songs at open-mic nights. Preceding the emergence of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Nathaniel released three albums and an EP; ‘Desire and Dissolving Men’ (2007), ‘In Memory of Loss’ (2010), ‘Falling Faster Than You Can Run’ (2013) and ‘Closer’ EP (2014).
In 2015, Rateliff launched Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. The band’s self-titled debut album was a breakout success—now certified Gold in the U.S., it has sold over a million records worldwide.
